Singleton and McGraw formed Where’s Aubrey in 2001 and began recording all original music.
Gary McGraw has played the violin since he was 3 years old. He started learning by ear using the Suzuki method in Tennessee, touring in 1976 with Shinichi Suzuki himself and playing in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Omni, and Disney World. Gary plays a Gagliano clone violin made in Paris between 1750 and 1800. His mandolin is a Flatiron. While not playing music, McGraw raises two boys, writes books about software security, and helps run Cigital.
Rhine Singleton played piano and violin before switching to guitar at age 11. In junior high school he started playing electric guitar and joined a rock n’ roll band that he stayed with until leaving his hometown in Connecticut to go to college in Virginia. While at home in New Hampshire, Rhine plays music with his friends and his wife and two sons, tries to get work done on his house and yard, and teaches at Franklin Pierce College
McGraw and Singleton have been playing Rhine Singleton’s original music together since 1985. Their musical styles range from old-timey folk music through modern jazz as well as guitar, fiddle, mandolin to beat the band.
